Scratch Offline Editor
« on: November 15, 2018, 09:08:09 AM »
Hi,

I'm wondering if it's possible to add Scratch Offline Editor to your catalog if you haven't already tried?
https://scratch.mit.edu/ Scratch is used in many schools to help children learn to code and apply computational thinking to solve problems. We have it on all our PCs here and use it right across the school curriculum.
There is a web-based version of Scratch, but the offline editor installs locally to PCs and doesn't require that you have accounts for each child (handy when we have hundreds of children aged 5-11 using this!)

Offline editor is based on Adobe Air and is available here, and an MSI is buried within the installer. 
https://scratch.mit.edu/download

Thanks for your consideration!

Thanks - Please note Scratch v3.0 has now been released in both online and offline formats.
It's now called Scratch Desktop v3.0 instead of Scratch Offline Installer v2.x.
It appears to use a very different installation mechanism, which is annoyingly still not available in an easy-to-use MSI file format.
